Young Girl Falls to Death in Yellowstone’s Grand Canyon

Tragic news out of Yellowstone National Park today: a young girl has died from a fall into the Grand Canyon of the Yellowstone.

The girl and her family were visiting the Grand Canyon of the Yellowstone on Sunday, walking on a trail to the Brink of the Lower Falls, just down from the North Rim Drive.
